I have the wrong program installed....but the chip has an on/off switch on it

I've seen hypertec and superchips etc, are they any good? I've heard good things about the split second tuner as well.

All opinions welcome

I guess reading comprehension is not a strong suit for you

This is the question I was answering. The before part isn't even a question, just a statement.

The only thing I see is a slight contradiction between all or some chip. The OP said "programmers" indicating more then a chip.
Now we can stop flaming and get back to what "chips/programmers" are good and what "chips" are crap.

IMO: If you can't "tune" with it I don't want it.
Pre-tuned chips assume stock engine or with bare min. intake and exhaust flow increase. At that point tuning is not needed unless you have MAF sensor you need to "trick" due to increase air flow.
Hypertech is a programmer, but I'm not sure what all it will let you tune and how much.
I have seen the Diablo tuner on a Mustang and It had some injector tuning. I don't recall what else it did.

Facebook had this thread posted, I did not realize it had been dead most of the year.

I already decided if my 4.0 dies within the next 3 years its getting stroked.

Here is a link to some electrical stuff that will actually do you some good:

If it dies in more than 3 years it's getting a Hemi.
